WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A Kansas man who was a fugitive for nearly two years was sentenced to more than four years in prison for a Wichita homicide.

Thirty-two-year-old Donald L. Jackson was sentenced Monday to four years and five months in prison for killing 44-year-old Leroy Fields in May 2009. Police say Fields died after being shot by two masked men at his Wichita apartment.

Jackson was caught in Baltimore in September 2011 after a routine traffic stop.

Jackson was charged with murder but pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter in March as part of a plea deal that included dropping charges of aggravated robbery and aggravated battery.
